Is Cody Simpson really the Australian Justin Bieber? The people of Australia seem to think so, as Simpson tends to draw Bieber-like crowds of 100's of tween and teenage girls.
Yes, the 15-year-old Simpson is fast becoming a household name, both in his native Australia as well as here. He has become so popular in fact, that officials are calling in extra security for fear of a mob scene at one of his concerts.
Does this sound like Justin Bieber? It should. All it takes for Justin is one fan to tweet out a location and 1,000 screaming girls come running from every direction. What should also sound like Bieber is that Cody Simpson was discovered on YouTube.
Oh and there is the little fact that Scooter Braun (Justin Bieber's handler) is now helping out Cody Simpson. It sounds like all Cody needs now is a "swagger coach" and a high-profile girlfriend like Selena Gomez. Word on the street is that there is a "swagger coach" on the market.
